I drove the 2015 Quattroporte S Q4 from Manhattan to its spiritual summer home, the Jersey Shore.
The performance impressed me—the sedan hits 60 mph in less than five seconds, thanks to all-wheel drive and a 3.0-liter V6 that thankfully doesn t keep its voice down.
I found the infotainment system infuriating, and the navi system s maps illegible and often incorrect.
But the Quattroporte is a flagship sedan competing with the likes of the Audi A8, Mercedes S-Class, and BMW 7 Series—all of which offer superior amenities.
